fuck livin' a nostalgia trip.
makes it tough , sometimes, to get a grip
but ya fuckin' gotta .
the door's open but yr waitin';
ya gotta walk right through it !
yr always makin' so much noise, man,
but ya never fuckin' do it !
who's the one that stands Before the Law?
what the fuck , man ? there's no one guardin' the door at all
except a "self" that's immaterial .
remain balanced on tha dizzying crest; fucking focus .
Track Name: Media Stomp
media limits me
via technologic passivity
and cultural conditioning.
but, fuck! Media Crap is all i see
and none of it means shit to me .
i keep seeing the same fucking thing:
every one is always looking down
at a fucking screen
and i'm like "what the fuck is happening?"
i exist in a mediated society
within which the mediums are killin' me ;
so i'm checkin' out .
Track Name: Juice
It's not all about tha Juice.
Refuse to fall for that ruse.
And while I do, of course, understand
the need to cut loose
(and despite catharsis in one's "I" or one's "You"),
there aint no 1 man above tha crew.
Tupac was just playin' a part,
fetishizing a life that's hard.
Fuck clout. Omar figured it out.
Who's got tha Juice now ?
Track Name: Angelus Novus
the Angel of History
turned her back to me
"This is how it's always gotta be:
there will be nothing
but Shit in the way
and you'll call it 'Progress'."
so now everything
i ever see
behind me .
thus if I'm kicking up dust
blame it on Angelus Novus.
it's just that Benjaminian History:
obsessed with one's mortality .
